Actually, that's not true - I have a 7500 with an aftermarket 604e/180
dual CPU card, and I'm sure there was at least one 9600 model that had
dual processors from the factory, so MP-safety most certainly is an
issue. Besides, he said he was testing it on an SMP box anyway - it'd
be hard to get a SWIM3 floppy controller on a NewWorld, since the core
chipsets in the NewWorlds don't have 'em.
